WWE Monday Night Raw comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (July 31, 2017) from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, featuring all the latest build to the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV) next month in Brooklyn.
Advertised for tonight: Samoa Joe vs. Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman in a triple threat match, Jason Jordan joins Miz TV, and more!
Come right back here at 8 p.m. ET when the Raw live blog kicks off once the show starts on USA. It will be below this line here. (REMINDER: NO GIFS OR PICS ARE ALLOWED IN THE COMMENTS SECTION. OFFENDERS WILL BE BANNED.)
WWE RAW RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR JULY 31
I like Kurt Russell as Captain Ron, Grace Under Pressure on in almost any circumstance. I like dark planetariums, and I like liveblogging this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with a recap of the segment that determined our Universal Championship match at SummerSlam, and thence into the intro video.
Kurt Angle makes his entrance. He welcomes us to the show and promises a great show, with a battle of the seven foot giants between Bigs Show and Cass, MizTV with his son, Jason Jordan, and a three-way HOSS WAR (my words, not his) between the three contenders for the Universal Championship.
But before we get started he wants to address the WWE Universe, and he says it's the 21st anniversary of when he won a gold medal with a broken freakin' neck, and although he's had his ups and downs over the years, he wouldn't be here right now without each and every one of us. It's true, it's damn true.
Enter Brock Lesnar, flanked by his advocate Paul Heyman as usual. They get in the ring and Paul says he's figured out the scam, he sees the angle that he's playing. He says Kurt needs to, wants to, has to take the title off of Brock, and why else would you put his client in a four-way at SummerSlam?
And not just any four-way, one with the single most stacked heavyweight division in WWE history. Braun Strowman, the sheer size, strength and speed of the monster among men, any other time in history he could be, SHOULD be Universal Champion. The Undertaker-slaying Roman Reigns, born, bred, and groomed to be champion, and probably in Angle's mind, READY to be champion.
Then there's that Samoan disgrace, that-- he cuts himself off and decides Kurt is hoping Joe wins
, because they were in the Main Event Mafia together. And he has a board of directors to answer to, a chairman that tells him to protect Raw at any cost, and he knows what's going to happen at SummerSlam.
All three men will gang up on Brock such that even a Beast can't survive and then fight among themselves to determine the new champ, much like in the three-way tonight. So why not just rename it SummerSlam 2017: Brock Lesnar Loses the Universal Title, because respectfully, Heyman suggests that Angle has been told to make Brock pay the ultimate price.
So it boils down to this-- if Lesnar loses the title at SummerSlam, he leaves WWE, and Paul leaves with him, because here's a piece of news Kurt isn't going to like. Brock Lesnar will not lose his title at SummerSlam. Not to the unstoppable Braun Strowman, not to the Undertaker-retiring Roman Reigns, and not to the cheap shot artist Samoa Joe.
At the end of the night there will be an announcement, and that will be your winner, and still reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Champion... BROCK LESNAR.
Commentary hypes up the triple threat and MizTV, and we cut to the Hardy Boyz walking backstage. They have a match after the break.
Back from commercial, we get entrances for a tag team match, appropriately enough.
Hardy Boyz (Jeff & Matt Hardy) vs. the Club (Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows)
Anderson and Matt to start, collar and elbow, Hardy gets a side headlock and wrenches it in a few times before Karl forces him against the ropes and tries to break dirty with punches. Matt catches him right back to the headlock, gets shot off and hits the shoulder block, back to the headlock, takeover, wrenching it on the mat.
Back suplex break this time but Hardy is tenacious and locks the headlock right back on, tagging Jeff in. Axehandle, arm wringer, armbar, quick tag back to Matt, who comes off the second with an overhead elbow to the shoulder. Arm wringer, yanking away, tag back to Brother Nero, whip to a double boot and a double mat slam, big splash leg drop combo, Gallows trying the save, and Poetry in Motion sends us to break.
Back from commercial, Gallows is in control but Jeff is fighting back. In the corner, pounding away, a cover gets Luke two and he draws Hardy up only to get caught by a jawbreaker. Duck the lariat, kick to the gut, Twist of Fate, Jeff has the separation he wants, crawling for the tag but Anderson gets his first and cuts him off.
Whip to the corner, Karl comes up empty on a Bronco Buster and Matt gets the tag! Turnbuckle smashes, corner lariat to the bulldog, only a nearfall! Whip to the corner, Anderson gets the boot up but Hardy catches him, swings him over, and drops the elbow! Diving elbow to the back of the neck, Side Effect... NO GOOD!
Fired up, calling for it, kick to the gut, Twist of Fate denied, elbow up on the charge but Big Hoot gets a cheap shot in and lets Anderson get a shotgun knee off. Tag made, up for Magic Killer, Jeff makes the save! Gallows with a big boot, Matt sidesteps the charge, Twist of Fate, tag made, Jeff climbs and gives in to his spot monkey tendencies...
The Hardy Boyz win by pinfall with a Swanton from Jeff Hardy on Luke Gallows.
The Hardyz celebrate on the ramp and the Revival jaw at them for a moment before we have a brawl! The Club run into the fray and it breaks down even further! Gallows into the LED boards, the Hardyz knock Wilder and Anderson off the stage and hit a pair of Twists of Fate on Dawson...POETRY IN MOTION INTO THE PIT!
Dean Ambrose runs into an interview backstage and is show footage of his main event tag match alongside his former Shield brother Seth Rollins and the post-match where he accepted a hug but refused the fist bump. He has to admit that they looked good and it felt good, it was like old times. But as far as them getting back together--
Seth rolls up, saying last week was special, them fighting the same fight again, just like old times. Dean says he still doesn't trust Rollins and he had eyes in the back of his head last week. So as much as the WWE Universe wants it and maybe even some small part of him wants it, he got burned once, and it's not happening again.
So we go to break.
Back from commercial, Seth Rollins is walking backstage, a somber expression on his face, when he runs into Cesaro and Sheamus. Cesaro says he wishes they could say they relate to him and Dean, but the truth is he and Sheamus have the exact opposite experience. Sheamus says they couldn't stand each other at first, but now they're the best of friends and trust each other.
Cesaro recounts the rise and fall of the Shield and reminds Rollins that Ambrose won't ever trust anybody again because of him. Sheamus says Dean was his last chance of success and now he's on his own to the point where he can't even do an episode of Ride Along. Cesaro suggests maybe they can use their clout to get him his own show called Ride Alone!
Rollins says they want to poke fun they can have a fight, and they can put their half-brains together and figure out which one of them would like to wrestle him tonight. Sheamus gets in his face and acts real threatening like and walks off.
Akira Tozawa, Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann vs. Ariya Daivari,
TJ Perkins TJP, & Tony Nese
Alexander and Nese to start, circling, collar and elbow, Tony shoots Cedric off and flexes. Back to the lockup, Nese gets a wristlock, Alexander rolls out, duck a lariat, headscissors, dropkick, tag made to Daivari but he runs into an arm drag into an armbar and Swann tags in. Whip reversed, leapfrog, flip, off the ropes, tilt-a-whirl headscissors gets one and he goes right back to the armbar.
Tozawa tags in, off the top with an axehandle, kick, arm wringer, another kick, cravate, snapmare, off the ropes with the Penalty Kick, a senton follows, only a two count. Ariya wrings the injured arm and Akira is in real pain, Titus O'Neil asking him if he wants to stop but he pleads he's okay and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Daivari has Tozawa screaming in agony in a kneeling armbar in the middle of the ring. Akira gets out, Shining Wizard connects, crawling for the tag and Swann and TJP are legal. Lariat takedowns, rolling solebutt, off the ropes, somersault leg drop, rolling thunder frog splash, Nese makes the save!
Alexander hits a diving lariat, he and Swann follow with stereo dives! Tozawa throws caution to the wind himself, suicide dive on Daivari! Nese tries to catch Rich on the apron, Cedric cuts him off, Swann back in, slips out of Detonation Kick, reverses an O'Connor roll, blind tag to Tozawa, crescent kick, the Stamina Monster climbs...
Akira Tozawa, Cedric Alexander, & Rich Swann win by pinfall with the diving senton from Tozawa on TJP.
Titus takes a quick selfie with the winning team.
MizTV with Jason Jordan is up next, after the break.
Back from commercial, Miz makes his entrance, flanked by Maryse and the Miztourage.
He grabs the mic and hesitates, shaking his head at the crowd, before beginning by saying he can't tell us how much he hates this city and then doing his usual intro spiel. He says MizTV is all about what's buzzing and Kurt Angle revealing an illegitimate son fits the bill.
Enter Jason Jordan, with new entrance music that sounds a little like it was written by a neural net that's gotten most of the way to learning how to write Emerson, Lake, and Palmer material but isn't quite all the way there yet. Miz asks how he feels and cuts him off to ask how it feels to be booed.
Jordan says they're going to boo, they're going to cheer, they'll do whatever they want and that's cool, but they both know Miz is the expert on boos. Miz says that's right, he is indeed an expert and that people have been wondering how he's gotten these opportunities but he's not one of those people, and his skills are excellent, his comparison to his father is obvious, and Miz wants to offer him an opportunity.
The opportunity of a lifetime, to join the Miztourage and sit under his proverbial learning tree. Jason says thanks, but he's good, and Miz points out all the things he's done and the wisdom he has to share. When you main event WrestleMania, you're bigger than everyone in the locker room, and there are vultures who would leech off his newfound lineage, but he'll show him how to navigate these waters, inside and outside the ring.
Miz says Jordan needs his help. Jason says it's tempting and he appreciates it, but he's going to pass. Miz says why would you need the Intercontinental Champion's help when dad is GM and can give you anything you want? Jordan says he's going to earn everything and doesn't need to be handed any of it, but Miz is cynical.
The A-Lister says WWE will chew him up and spit him out, and Jason says he'd rather have that happen than have any success associated with someone like Miz. Miz calls Angle a washed-up old jock who got his job out of pity and is in over his head, that he threw away the best years of his life and left a string of shattered dreams and broken promises, it's no wonder he's from Pittsburgh, because it's sad and broken down and pining for glory days that are never coming back just like Angle.
Jordan says he can say what he likes about him but if he says one more word about Kurt he's gonna make him regret it. They square up a second but Miz hides behind Dallas and Axel. He backs them off, takes a swing, Jason suplexes him into them and slips away up the ramp!
Roman Reigns narrates a video package ahead of the triple threat talking about how he's happy to send Braun Strowman back to hell and Samoa Joe may think he has his number but without the distractions he'd stand tall every time. He put the Deadman to rest, this is his yard, and he's the only guy that can put Brock away, so he's going to remind everyone who he is tonight before walking away as Universal Champion.
Seth Rollins is walking backstage, he'll wrestle Sheamus after the break.
Back from commercial in time for entrances.
Seth Rollins vs. Sheamus
Circling, collar and elbow, Sheamus backs Rollins into the turnbuckles and breaks clean. Seth goes around, gets shrugged off, side headlock takeover, Rollins gets to his feet, shoots the Celtic Warrior off but takes a shoulder block for his trouble. Drop down, leapfrog, crossbody, Sheamus catches him, float over, side headlock, short-arm knee, low superkick, off the ropes for a basement dropkick.
Drawing Sheamus up but the Irishman holds onto the ropes and catches him with an elbow to the face. Whip, duck the sledge, single leg dropkick and Sheamus heads outside. Thinking about a dive, Cesaro runs interference and Sheamus cuts the Kingslayer off before putting him into the barricade to send us to break.
Back from commercial, struggling on the turnbuckles, Sheamus gets a fireman's carry... AVALANCHE FINLAY ROLL! NO GOOD! Setting up the Beats of the Bodhran, Seth counters snapping his neck over the ropes, springboard but he's caught into the Irish Curse for a two count! Charging shoulder thrust, the Celtic Warrior climbs up top, Rollins ducks the diving lariat, reverse STO into the turnbuckles!
Sheamus staggered, Seth chopping and throwing forearms, off the ropes, Sheamus catches him with a jab but takes an enzuigiri in return and ends up outside, where Rollins fires off a suicide dive! Back in, Seth hits the springboard clothesline, ducks a lariat, sling blade connects and he's feeling it.
Up top, diving lariat takes Cesaro off the apron, Sheamus thinking White Noise but Rollins slips out...
Seth Rollins wins by pinfall with a folding press.
Cesaro blindsides Seth after but Rollins is throwing hands! That Damn Numbers Game leads to the tag champs winning that fight... ASSISTED WHITE NOISE! They go to leave but Seth gets up, determination on his face, and they go back to finish the job. DEAN AMBROSE MAKES THE SAVE!
Ambrose fights the good fight but gets caught two on one and eats a beatdown himself. Cesaro drops him with the Neutralizer! But Dean wants more! Cesaro with mounted punches, he yanks Ambrose's shirt off and chokes him with it... BROGUE KICK!
Sheamus collects the tag titles and the champs walk off holding them high as the Shield boys begin to stir once more.
Samoa Joe gets to narrate a video package now, talking about how he's been putting brave men to sleep for twenty years and most competitors sacrifice their lives without coming as close to the Universal Championship as he has. He's dominated Roman, and Braun stuck his nose in his business so Joe is going to make him pay no matter how tough he may seem. He's not scared of anyone, at SummerSlam he'll make history, but tonight he's making a statement and putting someone to sleep.
Speaking of being put to sleep, Bray Wyatt is up next. We get another Special Olympics package, for Justin "JJ" Jones, and then we go to break.
Back from commercial--
Bray says there's no escape, not for us, for our children, and certainly not for Finn Balor. No mortal man can escape the darkness, that's just the way it is. We're all held down by humanity's shackles, doing what we can to cope with the pain. We're pitiful, trying to hide behind our sins to be something we're not but we cannot hide from Wyatt, because he sees us.
He's Bray Wyatt, and he's everywhere. He's right there when the honest man tries to justify stealing, hiding in the shadows when we want to stand with pride and proclaim ourselves part of Balor Club. It's as if our blind delusions have gotten to the point of believing we can live vicariously through Finn. We're infected with hope, thinking our lives can be special, when we see an ordinary man like Balor do extraordinary things.
We see him fall and feel the heat of his pain and celebrate when he rises through the ashes but Bray sees Finn for what he is, the putrid shell of a man who never was. Finn Balor exists on borrowed time like all of us, tomorrow's dreams and yesterday's promises, and we speak with voiceless arrogance of getting up when we fall down...
Wyatt literally falls over laughing for a moment before asking how it felt last week when he took our precious little hero and twisted his body turned him into a mangled heap of broken promises. Did it hurt to see the world for what it truly is? When the Eater of Worlds knocks you down there is no getting up, no escape.
He poses, and part of Finn's theme plays before the lights come up and he appears posed in the ring the same way Bray was. Wyatt jaws at him but Balor doesn't turn, just cold cocking him with a Pele kick when he approaches! Dropkick to the outside and a shotgun dropkick sends Wyatt over the barricade into the crowd!
Finn poses on the turnbuckles in time with his music.
Braun Strowman takes his turn narrating a video package, saying most men nowadays like to settle their differences of opinion over the phone, but he causes chaos, doing what he wants when he wants however he wants. Reigns tried to bury him in four tons of twisted metal and he walked away, so what can Joe do to him? He'll reduce them both to piles of broken bones because he wants Lesnar at SummerSlam, and he'll become a champion among men.
The match will be after the break.
Back from commercial in time for entrances.
Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe
Braun blindsides Joe with a forearm and Reigns throws hands on the monster among men! Corner to corner body avalanches from Strowman, charging lariat on Roman and he dumps the Big Dog out of the ring, proclaiming that it's his yard to send us to break.
Back from commercial and Braun is choking Samoa in the corner but Reigns dodges the body avalanche and Joe is right on him with the corner enzuigiri. The temporary Samoan alliance dumps Strowman outside and square up. Roman blocks a punch, big slicing rights, a pair of lariats, whip reversed, off the ropes with the leaping lariat... JOE COUNTERS INTO A FUJIWARA ARMBAR!
He switches arms to get between the Big Dog and the ropes but Braun yanks Joe outside and throws him into the barricade. He considers the fallen Destroyer a moment too long and Reigns catches him with big right hand hands, fighting into the crowd. Smashing the monster's face into an internal barricade, Strowman gets a few of his own off and puts Roman into a crew table and chucks him in the aisle.
Joe has the Coquina Clutch on Braun over the barricade! He breaks it to fight Reigns off but Roman backs him off with rights, whip reversed and the Big Dog eats barricade. Elbow into the enzuigiri, back in the ring the Big Dog cuts him off with a kick but runs into the Rock Bottom clutch. Reigns blocks with elbows, backing him into the corner for the ten lariats.
Off the ropes for the Mafia kick finish and Samoa is laid out in the middle of the ring. Calling for the Superman Punch but Joe has left the ring, so Roman heads out after him and hits the Superman Punch off the steel steps! He sets the Destroyer in the ring but Strowman is waking up and the Big Dog's focus shifts.
He calls for the spear but charges into a boot to the face! Braun picks him up and rams his back into the post, catches Joe with an elbow, a lariat lays him out and the monster among men goes back to Reigns, putting him through the steps. Around the corner with a knee for Samoa, back to Roman, he biels him into the ring!
Taking the top steps, Strowman chucks those into the ring as well before heading over to Samoa. Caught with the enzuigiri, a senton follows, Joe heads back in, a senton for Reigns as well... NO GOOD! The Destroyer wedges the steps in the corner and draws Roman up, whip reversed, fireman's carry denied, the Coquina Clutch is on! BRAUN RUNS BOTH OF THEM OVER!
Joe up on his shoulders, running powerslam... BIG DOG BREAKS IT UP! All three men spent on the mat as a well-earned "This is awesome!" chant goes up in the crowd, Braun is up first, he tosses Reigns into the corner and rams the back of his head into the turnbuckles over and over!
The monster among men considers the steps, picking them up and dragging them over. He begins to lift them... SUPERMAN PUNCH! Roman hits Braun with the steps, calls for the spear...
Roman Reigns wins by pinfall with a spear on Samoa Joe.
Reigns and Strowman stare each other down ramp to ring as Joe broods against the barricade.
Commentary hypes up the battle of the Bigs for later and recap last week's match between Enzo Amore and Big Cass and the fallout therefrom.
Enzo rolls up on Big Show getting ready for the match and he wants to apologize for getting him into this. It means the most that Show has his back, and Big says he likes that Enzo always keeps it real. He did get him into this mess but it's a battle he doesn't mind fighting and Cass needs to be taught some respect.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, the Drifter is here to play us a song now that his last name has been surgically removed.
He says he laid Finn Balor's soul to rest and now he's back where he grew up, in Pittsburgh. He remembers sitting on a hill and playing guitar and seeing the sights, but the thing that stands out the most are the people, and the people of Pittsburgh inspired him to write this song.
Predictably, the song runs Pittsburgh and the people thereof down.
Rather less predictably, Kalisto's entrance interrupts him!
Elias vs. Kalisto
Collar and elbow, Samson backs Kalisto in the corner and pushes him back but breaks clean eventually. Side headlock from the luchador, he holds on and takes a knee to block the shoot off, side headlock takeover, the Drifter shoots him off this time, he goes under, kick cominbation, handstand walk into the headscissors but Elias throws him away into the corner to send us to break.
Back from commercial and the Drifter is wrenching back unholy on a rear chinlock. He throws a few knees to the ribs but Kalisto fights his way to his feet and breaks with a jawbreaker. Off the ropes, he runs right into a big boot and Samson follows by stomping a proverbial mudhole in the corner.
Backbreaker gets a nearfall, delayed vertical suplex gets another, following it up with a Canadian backbreaker rack, wrenching it in and shaking the luchador. Kalisto breaks with punches and gets dropped to the mat, matrix evasion on a lariat, kick to the head, sidestep a charge, enzuigiri from the apron, springboard seated senton, dropkick to the knee, off the ropes... HEADSCISSORS DRIVER!
Elias gets a kick off...
Elias wins by pinfall with Drift Away.
Alexa Bliss is interviewed backstage, she's ecstatic to wrestle Bayley at SummerSlam. It's the same Bayley that she beat for the title and who doesn't have a single extreme bone in her body. She disputes the idea that she got herself intentionally counted out against Sasha Banks and says never in a million years did she expect she'd lose to Bayley.
She mocks Banks watching SummerSlam and complaining about not having the match and says she's busy doing a promotional tour and that means nobody can bail Bayley out against Nia Jax tonight. It's gonna be a massacre.
It's also going to be up next, after the break, but first we get an ad for Pure Country: Pure Heart, starring Shawn Michaels and Willie Nelson, because why not?
Back from commercial we get a recap of the Ambrose/Rollins interview from earlier because Raw is three hours long.
Dean and Seth are in the locker room licking their wounds and Rollins thanks Ambrose for making the save. Dean says he didn't come out to help, he won the match and didn't need any help. Seth asks why he came down then, and Ambrose says he knows he's the Architect and he put him in a situation where he needed to come down or he'd look bad, so next time don't pick a fight you can't finish.
Dean continues, telling Seth to not bother saying that he would have done the same because the hell he would, and he storms off.
Bayley vs. Nia Jax
Bayley in with a forearm, keeping her distance, firing knees off and Jax grabs her by the ponytail and whips her out toe the apron. Hugger gets back in and slips out, a punch caught and Nia fires off a headbutt before stalking after her. Punches, Bayley tries a whip, denied, up and over, caught but she slips down into a sleeper hold only to get mared off.
A biel sends the Hugger outside hard and we go to break.
Back from commercial and Jax has Bayley grounded with a full nelson but the Hugger straightens up, stomps the feet and gets a few elbows to break. Off the ropes, up for a powerslam, she slips out and puts Nia into the corner with a knee strike. Another from the other side, up and over, back elbow caught into a waistlock but she breaks with elbows.
Double chickenwing lift into a facebuster, Bayley outside and Jax puts her hair up into a ponytail to mock the Hugger as she crawls her way back in the ring. Stomping away, throwing Bayley in the corner, body avalanche, into the corner again, to the apron, upkick, desperate forearm, she goes under but gets thrown into a corner again.
Leg kicks, chops, but Bayley gets run over by a shoulder block. Barely dodging an elbow drop, a low bulldog, dropkick, the Hugger making a one-armed comeback, stunner over the middle rope into a knee trembler and Jax is knocked to the floor. Crossbody off the apron! Alexa Bliss runs in but Bayley sees her coming and stops the attack!
Nia runs over and puts Bayley into the barricade, setting up a charge but the Hugger sidesteps, Jax goes hard into the steps, referee Rod Zapata is making his count...
Bayley wins by count-out.
Bliss tries to attack again but Bayley evades her and slips away up the ramp, confident.
Big Cass is interviewed backstage, he says that he always know that Big Show talked out his posterior but now he's got Enzo to do it for him. And how are they gonna teach him a lesson in respect when they don't respect themselves? His grandmother always told him you'd be judged by the company you keep, and if that's the case, Big Show is a miscreant, a seven foot pile of it, and you'll see what respect looks like when he's in a heap in the middle of the ring.
And so to break.
Back from commercial we get a bit of hype for our Tozawa/Daivari #1 contender's match on 205 Live tomorrow night followed by a recap of MizTV because Raw is three hours long and there are children who were born during the opening segment who are going to kindergarten now.
Enzo Amore makes his entrance, he does the deal. He gets on the mic and says he's no angel, he's done some despicable things, but in his whole life he's never once eaten the brown part of a bruised banana. Big Show's not going to bounce checks, the only thing that will bounce is Cass.
Big Cass vs. Big Show
Big Show in hot with punches before the bell, the bell rings and Cass fires shots back but the giant pulls ahead and lays that wicked overhand chop in. Cass with an elbow, right hand, looking for a whip but Show blocks and chucks him outside! Back inside, he gets Show caught up in the ropes but the giant runs him over!
Scoop and a slam, off the ropes with a seven foot elbow drop, only good for two. Following it up with a suplex, he gets the goozle but Cass blocks the chokeslam with a kick to the knee and follows it up with a chop block wiping the giant out on the mat, clutching his knee in agony. Right hook, pick the leg, drop an elbow on the knee and Show bellows in pain.
Big Cass with another elbow drop, wrenching a toehold in, grinding the point of his elbow into the knee. Show reverses with a headscissors, kick to the head, blocks a punch from his knees but takes a boot right on the jaw. Diving with an axehandle but Show catches him with a right hand! Lariats wiping Cass out as the adrenaline takes hold, Stinger splash but Colin catches him with a Mafia kick!
Enzo gets on Big's back and beats on him!
Big Cass wins by disqualification.
Cass lays Enzo out with a boot and stands over his fallen body, slapping disdainfully and jawing at him about disrespect. Show recovers, Cass runs over... WMD! Show falls to the mat exhausted but is able to get up and help Enzo to the back as Cass slowly awakens.
That's the show, folks.
